I'm about to give birth to my first child (if it ever chooses to leave my womb!!). I've been given information on the vitamin k and hep b injections. I'm about to research the reasoning behind giving a new born a hep b injection. Does anyone know why or have any research as to why it is done so early?
For the record, I'm pro vaccination so that is not the question here. I just don't understand why hep b is given so early!
